Private prenatal visits with a Lactation Consultant are appropriate for women with history of:
- any breast/nipple surgery
- flat or inverted nipples
- insulin dependent diabetes
- PCOS and infertility
- pregnancy with twins or more
- significant difficulty breastfeeding in the past
- are planning to induce lactation
The visit is tailored to your specific needs and will include individualized breastfeeding education, a breast exam, discussion and demonstration of key techniques in the first few days, referrals to other health care providers who may need to be part of your breastfeeding team, how to put your best foot forward with establishing a solid milk supply, common hospital procedures and experiences that lead to unplanned supplementation… and more!
We include a mini private breastfeeding class for you that covers key information and guidance for your first few weeks.
Note: If necessary, we may request to collaborate with your other health care provider(s) to help you be ready when you need to be.
